A central question is on the meaning that is attached to the notion of 'remembering home' and how this influences identity formation and consolidation. Three cases will be analysed after conducting semi-structured interviews. This exploratory study is useful in cross-cultural psychology as it focuses on lived experience from intrapersonal and interpersonal perspectives of the Zimbabweans in South Africa, an intercultural and dynamic environment.
